Lonnie Walker IV sprained his ankle

In their second-to-last preseason game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Los Angeles Lakers are having some difficulty. Early on, they showed promise by consistently getting out on the fast break and holding Anthony Edwards and company to a 30-all tie by the quarter’s conclusion.

From that point on, though, the Timberwolves have set the tempo, while the Lakers have struggled to put the ball in the basket. Lonnie Walker IV, who started for Los Angeles and scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting in 19 minutes, has had a little issue finding the basket.

Unfortunately, he suffered an ankle sprain in the third quarter and will have to sit out for the rest of the game. Those rooting for the Lakers are holding out hope that Walker can replace Malik Monk, who was excellent for the team last year but departed as a free agent in the offseason.

Walker has never been a shooter who consistently puts up high percentages, so he will need to focus on consistency and efficiency. His agility and explosiveness, however, are more than sufficient, and they could prove useful to the Purple and Gold this year.
